"I love making people laugh, and I love making people cry even, and I find the pursuit of a truthful performance to be deeply satisfying to my core", Louis-Dreyfus told the Washington Post when asked whether she contemplated quitting acting.

Once she opened up about her battle with cancer, she was humbled by the positive feedback she received and made a decision to lean into it.

She said: "I'm grateful to be alive".

Good news for fans of scathing political satire Veep: Star Julia Louis-Dreyfus revealed she was never going to step away from the show's final season. Thursday night, she said, "Everything is good".

Her show went on hiatus while she had surgery and three rounds of chemo.

Aside from her work on Veep, she's also undertaken some new charitable endeavors, including working with Saks Fifth Avenue as their Key to the Cure ambassador.

The 57-year-old Emmy victor of "Veep" announced she was diagnosed with breast cancer a year ago. "I think people liked that I had a sense of humour about it, and also I think it's an important conversation to have about health and healthcare, and I very much considered the notion that, as someone battling this disease, the idea that I might not have health insurance, which I do thanks to my great union, is completely terrifying".

During her tough journey, the 57-year old gave updates of her experience on social media. It's really kind of lightening in a bottle as they say, so I'm relishing every blessed second'.

Back in January, as the actress went in for her last round of chemotherapy she shared a hilarious video her sons - Henry, 26, and Charlie, 21 - recorded to support her during her final procedure.

Probably it was due to Julia Louis-Dreyfus suffering from cancer that HBO had to delay the filming of Veep season 7.
